This place is perfect for resetting and getting back in touch with nature. One of our favorite places to get away for a couple of days. We've been here a total of 3 times now, and we will be back. Beautiful!

It was raining during the day and temperatures dropped to 33 F in the night.. So, tent cabin was a good option for us. The wood stove provided good heat but, of course, once the wood inside the stove burns out, it gets cold. Please...More
